We told you they were “really good” — over the weekend, 23rd Ave’s Garfield High School boys basketball team defeated Rainier Beach for the state title:

Garfield preaches unity. It thrives on doing everything as a team, from leaving the locker room after a game together to each person taking responsibility for the ups and downs of the season.

The team came together one more time this season on Saturday night, this time to win a state championship. The No. 3 Bulldogs pulled away late to capture the Class 3A state title with a 66-51 win over three-time defending champions No. 1 Rainier Beach.

“There’s no one person; we say this all the time: What we can’t do alone, we can do together,” Garfield coach Ed Haskins told the Seattle Times. “It’s not about me, it’s not about one person or two people, it’s about Garfield basketball.”
